Wellington, 36, was the star of PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN the show at St Leonards Square on Saturday. Playing New Brighton in a two-day match in the Metro senior A competition, Wellington finished day one with figures of 7-30 in the first innings and 3-28 in the second innings to complete a great day at the office. The left-arm bowler could call it the office as well seeing as he is the groundsman for the pitch at Sumner’s home ground. “It helps knowing where the juicy parts in the pitch are,” said Wellington. •Turn to page 6 • By Gabrielle Stuart LYTTELTON police have responded to community concerns about their response to crime. Sergeant Dave Knowles has organised a community meeting next week to address the concerns and present new Lyttelton crime figures. The meeting was organised last week – after months of concern by residents and articles in the Bay Harbour News. Last week Bay Harbour News reported on a former detective, Peter Newsome, who complained about the level of service. Last month it was revealed a community survey of about 100 Lyttelton residents found two-thirds believed the police response to crime was inadequate. Sergeant Knowles said he wanted to be open with the community, and answer any questions they had. He was invited by the Bay Harbour News to sit down to discuss the latest crime figures, but he said he would rather present them to the whole community at the meeting. The meeting will be held at 6pm on March 16 at the Lyttelton Primary School hall on Oxford St. “We want a chance to supply statistics that are factual, and that way you’ll immediately see that some people’s perception of it is incorrect,” he said. Canterbury area prevention manager Acting Inspector Paul Reeves and Lyttelton Senior Sergeant Stephen McDaniel also planned to be at the meeting to help answer questions, he said. •Former cop positive, p4 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website Come in for a visit and experience the difference Reinvent your lifestyle and catch the rising tide of seaside property values 107 & 109 Main Road, Redcliffs Agent Onsite Thursday and Sunday 11-11.30am Ph 03 384 9249 108 Port hills Rd, heathcote Valley Lyttelton Tunnel Ferrymead Heritage Park Port Hills Rd Tunnel Rd We are here Bridle Path Rd Martindales Rd Mark Gardner 021 633 669 Eddie Spry 021 156 5884 Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd Licensed (REAA 2008)
